Mr JENNINGS - In view of complaints that have been made relevant to the pollution of the ocean beaches at Sydney, due, it is suggested, to the discharge of organic matter from oceangoing vessels in the vicinity of beach fronts, and causing interference with the health and convenience of thousands of the Sydney surfing public, will the Minister representing the Minister for Health cause a warning to be issued to shipping operating in the vicinity of these beaches to the effect that the regulations and penalty provisions of the Federal Beaches, Fishing Grounds and Sea Routes Protection Act will be enforced against those responsible for such actions?
